SMT Demon thread
Who is the best demon and why is it Pixie?
I was so crushed when my beautiful Pixie in Nocturne evolved into that... Beast
You got a problem with bald faggots?
If your demons were so good then how come I wrecked them?
Hey matador heard you been talking shit, Like I wouldn't find out
>Bitch took over 10000 Macca and 3 chakra drops from me
>Fused one with All the main 4 MaDyne skills and Mediahan mana refill and mana serge + aid and full mooned it to lv 85
The hell are demons?
You guys mean Persona right? Izanagi-hivemind where u at?
Come back when you kill a high tier demon
He-HO! on outta here bitch.
Best Demon is Black Frost. Nigga has earned himself a permanent spot on the team after being so based
I do not understand these demons you speak of of.
Do you mean shadows? Yes, me and my friends have defeated many shadows through the power of social links.
Alice is the best if you
are a pedophile
Do does SMTIV have another difficult boss fight after Medusa or have I simply mastered the mechanics? I haven't died more than once to a boss since then, it's just a matter of keeping a varied party and then building one that exploits the boss' weakness.
I just killed the top floor demon on the tower with the 3 prisoners (haven't done the other two) on the first try.
To be honest I was kinda surprised the crew didn't immediately figure out who was behind that mask. The game conveniently neglected to give Walter any lines during the scene, too.
>Cute Pixie joins my party
>"Hey take me to the park, okay?"
>Bond with her through battles
>Gives me things after leveling up, likes me
>"Okay here's the park...."
>Convince her to stay with me
>"O-Okay...It's not like I want to or a-anything..."
>Two minutes later
>SOMETHING IS HAPPENING TO PIXIE
>This lesbian dyke shows up
Removed from the party. Not even worth fusing.
Maybe I just like her top tier dark spell? Ever think of that?
...Okay, I admit it, I just really want to
hug_Alice really hard, but she'd probably kill me if I tried. Anyway, I just love the idea of some little girl going up against these crazy horrific demons, and kicking their asses
oh wow i'm so mad right now
dont you know persona sucks dick and every other subseries is superior
i am godly megaten fan i don't acknowledge the benefits and downsides of each subseries
>Needing Social links
>come back when you get your own strength
SMT IV is pretty easy compared to the other SMTs. After 1/4th in the game I was so ridiculously over-powered it wasn't even funny. And I wasn't even running into battles that much
Not putting up with for the cute diolouge when she turns back
>why are you looking at me like that
>I have been with you the longest
>what you waiting for
>I am Pixie of the fairy clan pleased to join you
i poured nearly 100 useless points into DEX, come to think of it. If it'd been MAG all the way i'd have 200 right now, which I really should have done since every other stat seems useless in comparison. Level 32 here dealing mid 700s with full buffs/smirk
"M-Mega...ten? I do not understand. Are these.....perhaps....spin-offs of our games?"
"But my friend, power comes from the heart and from our friends. You look quite odd my friend, but I'm sure you could become much stronger if you had friends."
"As you are now....I'm afraid I would easily be able to defeat you."
I killed the final boss when I was in my mid 20's. You're definitely fine dude.
Try some of the challenges in the hunter association (Bar-Keep) if you want a challenge.
Not him but I just reached the Amala.
Y-You mean she changes back?
Why no love for Ippon-datara? He loves you.
I like her ...if incarnation more. I just love the fact that Kaneko will change up the appearance of some demons across the series.
Come back when you have natural 650+ hp m8 and can use almighty skills that don't suck ass.
I'm pretty sure strange journey's protag or pretty much any other SMT would kick the shit out of real world Yu since he's just a regular high school student when he's not in the TV.
>demifiend talking shit again
Don't you have something better to do?
>Hear Strange Journey has Aztec and Mayan deities
>Oh shit its true
>Quetzalcoatl is a high level demon
Also this is the best design.
Can't help it, its in my genes.
Loser. Come back when you can be a door.
Aeros is the best.
Yea get the the last kalpa you get asked for the demon that has been with you the longest go though the door your demon reverts to pixie at lv 80 all stats are 30 and has these skills,
Get back and let the real best demon come in.
Chaos is always the best. Enjoy being brainless servants to your "gods"
>law and chaos
>not glorious neutral master race
Guys what the fuck are you doing?
>my Pixie's last form was Odin
>tfw it transforms back
>Become brainwashed zombie without free will that worships a dickish God
>MUH STRENGTH, MUH FREEDUMS, MUH SOCIAL DARWINISM
>Buying some time for something that will happen over and over again until either side wins
>Just, like, fuck everything man
I just can't win.
I like her too but then she sort of got all messed up in SMTIV and well yeah.
>Implying I don't use all three
Meditation is implied nigga, it matters so little that I didn't even mention it.
>Get 30,000,0000 Quadrillion Macca because I Preach and Pray the baddies away.
Come the fuck on, guys.
>tfw literally all fanart of her sucks ass
I never got any of them
I just beat the TDE only a week ago and Daisoujou levelled with me all game once I got him
>Not having her out kicking ass while enjoying the view
It's like you guys don't even SMT
the cutest. How long is SMT 2? After I beat Raidou 2 I plan on playing SMT2>Nocturne>DDS>DDS2
Oh wow that ain't half-bad, I'm leveling correctly.
since SMT V will take a while to come out hopefully they add him in Persona 5
>Matador appears as a high level boss
>''I challenge you to a duel''
>this starts playing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdAS7EDuF6Y
>cumming so hard
I can only dream
"A bird of Chinese lore that kidnaps human girls and raises them as its own.
It is normally seen in bird form, but it is said to be able to take off its feathers and become a human woman. A girl kidnapped and raised by a Gu Huo Niao is said to become one herself. "
>that move in Nocturne when she turns around and bends over for the camera.
Sylph is the cutest.
She's like pixie, but actually interesting.
>play smt4 as my first game
>get blackhole end and save
>mfw I realized what I had done
I hope you got hard at the turning from a bird into a human woman part and not the kidnapping little girls part.
I am playing through SMTIV as well, almost at the end.
So far, no. Minotaur and Medusa were more or less the big difficulty curve, and everything else afterwards was easy town. Partially because Naraku was a terrible fucking first part of the game that had shit demons, no real way to easily make money to summon stuff from Mido, and everything being locked down in Burrows.
After that part, Terminals become common, quests open up more and offer more money, you start to get more exp from battles and you start to build up your MC to the point where they are actually worth a damn (Went magic the first time since Physical and Gun attacks are more or less useless 90% of the time). Gave him one of each element, the full revival spell (The one that does not drain your HP), and Concentrate (And the same on most of my other demons). Mother****ing powerhouse.
I dont even know why I like this guy, he looks cool though even if he's not really a standout persona
>imagining the demon stealing little girls
>making them take off their pants and remain bottemless for years
"N-No...I can't think like this..."
Nigga please. Death Flies was ultimate random battle ender.
I'm sure everyone can agree on this, but why post the worst of his design?
But that's wrong.
The entire point of a Law that YHVH would love entirely hinges on humans having complete and total free will, but no desire to use it negatively, without any angels or demons to influence them. Only brainwashing is in SJ where Law's being set up without the guidance of YHVH as an emergency to revive him with faith, but it's not the society he wants.
And Chaos is tyranny by the strongest, it really may as well ditch the use of the word "freedom" anywhere near association with it. It should usually work out well enough for whoever's strongest, of course, and if everyone else is lucky, the strongest person also wants to organize a decent society for others.
And neutral will just never turn out right because the sunshine and rainbows curing the apocalypse is bullshit. SMT4 was so goddamn ridiculous with this, it blatantly ignored EVERYTHING that was left wrong that they did nothing about. Like holy shit, they did nothing to stop the demons that already infested Tokyo, much less the swarms that poured out from the Expanse opening at least twice, and then let them loose upon the entire rest of the world by removing the dome. What the flying fuck would a village like Kiccigiorgi do if a single Oni so much as glances in their direction? The fuck are a bunch of middle ages farmers armed with hoes gonna do? Why the fuck can they trust an unnamed, unknown goddess that ALREADY died once with protecting them or having human's interests in mind?
Demi-Fiend stood triumphantly over Pixie, not speaking a word. He only glared at her as she laid on the ground, beaten and ashamed.
"P-Please...I'll do anything..." She looked down at Demi-Fiend's demonic Demi-Erection, growing bigger and bigger inside of his pants.
"I was only kidding before. I-I didn't think you'd actually..." Pixie started to tear up as Demi-Fiend picked her up and held her in a tight grip. He used his free hand to crush Pixie's wings. The little fairy was not defenseless and unable to escape. Tears streamed from her eyes as she looked into Demi-Fiend's eyes beggingly.
"What are you g-going to do to me?"
Demi-Fiend only smirked, moving one of his fingers lower and lower on Pixie's body....
I don't see what's so bad about the new angels, I liked them.
Cowboy Dante is my least favorite of his designs, it's not completely awful or anything, just yeah those pants kill it. Nocturne used my favorite, totally redeemed that design from the pile of shit that was DMC2. Thought the buttcape was pretty cool.
Weren't there already demons outside of Tokyo? Also I think humans can fight back against the demons with the Demonicas and Demon Summoning Program. After all, the only reason they had to put a dome over Tokyo was because of the missiles.
So, it has the powers of an erection but not the appearance or mannerisms of an erection?
They're even better when you kind of understand the angels themselves and what the designs are trying to portray. They look way more like they're actually described as compared to just some random coloured human things like before
Mostly they just look like fucking gross Nomura shit.
Minotaurs one of the cool ones.
Uncle Dante looks like a dude going through a midlife crisis. He is WAY too old to be trying to rock that haircut.
God damn I want to plow this little whore.
I want to rip off her wings and cum in every whole, pull open her slutty shirt and suck on her fairy tits.
I never see this guy and I have no idea why!
Just fucking look at how gold this motherfucker is
HE'S PURE FUCKING GOLD!
>Hating Kazuma Kaneko's Dante devil trigger
Do you even SMT?
>every other subseries is superior
WOAH WOAH WOAH
LET'S NOT GET AHEAD OF OURSELVES, HERE.
I've only played smt4 out of all the games, but they are creepy as fuck. It's weird how all the angels, or most, are robots. I do like the artstyle a lot though. Currently about to do the Chaos story after beating Law. The ending was very anticlimactic and oddly positive compared with the rest of the game.
I wiped on King Kenji for days before I swallowed my pride and fused dozens of times to get a single demon that had status aliment nulls. Fuck him forever.
High Pixie and Hua-Po laughed as Pixie laid on the ground.
"What's the matter? I thought you were the best Demon there was? OP even said so!" Hua-Po kicked Pixie in the stomach. Pixie grunted at the terrible pain.
"Come now sister, surely you can't be that pathetic" High-Pixie commented with a sense of disgust in her voice towards Pixie. Hua-Po giggled and then fluttered over behind Pixie.
"Aww, what's the matter? Little Pixie can't FLY?" Hua-Po yelled as she crushed Pixie's wings with all her might. Pixie tried to scream out in pain, but High-Pixie gripped her head and muffled her screams with a deep kiss.
"Oh Lucifer..." High Pixie moaned in between the kiss "And to think all our species is related to this garbage Hua-Po.....how depraved...."
High Pixie begun to lick the tears from Pixie's face as Hua-Po gripped Pixie's hips
"We have plans for you buttercup!" Hua-Po screamed with glee as a bulge erected in her one-piece...
Look at this motherfucker.
It doesn't even looks like its a living thing, and that's awesome.
These were a lot like the DDS designs.
The only demons were from Black Samurai's books transforming humans, and the NPCs claim the Archangels purged all demons from the surface (which made way more believe in the archangels).
Your group took basically all demonicas left in the CDF base, which was small in the first place. Demon Summoning Program was rare too, they mainly used smartphones and they ran out of them and couldn't make more. And farmers in the outside world aren't gonna have any technology whatsoever.
And they put a dome over it, but if they hadn't and didn't get nuked, Infernal Tokyo would've happened instead due to demons. Even 25 years later, Tokyo was still shitty with everyone hiding from demons unable to do anything against them.
...And then you stop red pills from being distributed, meaning they were even less safe from demons. Then the expanse opens, flooding out more demons. Then Lucifer keeps the expanse open for ages, flooding out even more.
Neutral ends with Tokyo having a worse demon problem that it did before you even got there.
I have space marines in antartica smt and the tactics smt game on my flashcart for the dsi
I haven't gotten around to them yet though
I just started chapter 2 in raidou and i was thinking i was overleveled but then i got wombo comboed when the big lion chimera thing i was trying to level up turned on me and wombo comboed me mid fight with a bunch of skeletons and a lightning dog thing.
Like i said combat is prett shit but that was a pretty nice twist.
fuck this bayonetta tier level of designs i havent started playing this yet since im trying to finish up newgame plus and extra dungeon on soul hackers but fuck is there at least a decent explanation for them looking like that?
enjoy your life of debt after that
With Metatron as close second
>that tourneyfag feel
If we're just talking about waifu demons then Morrigan, definitely.
Read the bibles actual descriptions of angels
Fun fact: The toilet is actually symbolism. Seriously, read the SMT Wiki sometimes. Some of origin stuff is pretty damn fascinating, I really do like how much effort some of these designs have in subtle and not so subtle ways.
Hell, even Mara looking like a penis is symbolism
Infernal Tokyo happened because Protagonist-kun sided with the demons instead of the Angels or Masakado. Also, they had an entire force for stopping demons, and post dome removal they not only have Masakado, the Spirit of Tokyo, and the main character, but all of the hunters working together, and all of the National Defense Divinities, plus the Samurai from above the dome. Plus, the only reason nobody had any Smart Phones was because the Ashura Kai destroyed most of them to prevent people from getting power.
This one is my favorite. Usually fuse her and keep her for a while in every game she's in. Was disappointed that SMT4 went with her old design.
I just started playing the series and I was surprised at how much is actually based on real world mythology. Theres plenty that has artistic liberties taken, but some a pretty interesting takes on actual religions
Just finished Raidou 2 with this bitch a good portion of the game, just too good
I wish more MegaTen titles had superbosses like the ones in DDS that actually require you to min/max and abuse mechanics to your favor.
Most of them don't have much in terms of post-game that's actually challenging once you grinded a bit.
Is he not a story element in 4? cause he wasn't even a special fusion, I just found him randomly when I leveled up enough. Haven't done the other two paths yet, so maybe I just haven't seen him.
Smt draws heavily from the dictionnare infernal and old testament
Also japanese folklore and their own demonic descriptions
Shadow hearts is a good game to go to if you want some crazy monsters too
Same, I was brought up in a religous home and still remember some stuff from the Bible, mainly all that wheel shit, but I had thought the names were made up till I googled it. Pretty neat
Dunno how better to explain it, plus it's been years since I read it.
I also remember someone's wife putting a tent stake through his temple witha mallet and the sun not setting for a day. That stuck with me more than the parables
The proto-protag died pretty early on in the initial angel fights. They stopped the angels from taking children, so the angels never nuked the area and were wiped out.
"Entire force" is playing it up too, this is Japan we're talking about. I'm pretty sure they go into the CDF being such a joke that it let people from the public join, and was still a pretty small operation.
Masakado also went away, Tokyo Goddess has done absolutely nothing in the history of ever except die, main character's just one man, the hunters/samurai are basically useless and have been shown as much like that, and they still don't have the means to make more phones.
Flynn's probably fine because he's overpowered, but like hell anyone else is so lucky with the demon swarm he let loose on the world... or with them moving out from Tokyo to farmlands and being too spread out to possibly defend anything together or call for help and get it before everyone's dead.
Nevermind the Mikado and Tokyo people clashing over difference in culture, especially given only the most pious and religious people of Mikado were left alive by this point whereas Tokyo's a den of deprived post-apocalyptic people desperate for anything they can get.
>Implying it's not Lucifer
Doubles as a waifu and the best bro you could hope to have
>Atlus says their making SMT IV
"OH SHIT LET'S FUCKING GO-
"....W-Well that's okay. I'm sure the models and battles will still look grea-
>2D Sprite battles
Where were you when Atlus chose not to put Shin Megami Tensei on the PS3?
You are not making any sense.
So the "simpler mechanics" of DDS allow them to make significantly more difficult bosses in your opinion? Please explain.
My point was exactly the opposite. DDS1/2 had some of the only "superbosses" in the franchise that required people to think and make a plan. The vast majority of extra bosses in all the other games can very easily be killed by just grinding a tiny bit or not being completely retarded.
The fact that you do literally everything and they do nothing but job at every chance. I mean really, your group of Samurai are already stronger than basically any of them in existence by merits of beating Minotaur and Medusa. And they did that when they were the most inexperienced, poorly equipped they can be in the game, with the weakest demon allies. Hunters/Samurai can't even do that much.
They're even worse than SJ's non-protag Strike Team, who couldn't do dick without Doomguy.
I love SMT IV, but I really hope SMT V is on the PS when it comes out, or the
next Sony handheld. I'd say PS Vita, but that'll probably be dead by the time SMT V comes out
At least we get Persona 5.
3d models were pretty shitty
sprites are way better
fuck off baby
i hope the next smt is on a nintendo console because sony sucks
call your persona and go be acasual somewhere else
I think they're fine as long as the animations aren't aren't too drawn out. It's been a while, but I seem to remember liking how fast DDS's combat was. I know the auto was extremely fast.
honestly the battles in nocturne look like shit anyways. they're not THE WORST ever but at the same time they are really not that great. Persona may be worse in every other way but the fights in that game look way, way better.
Turns back, so it's all good.
This mutation always gets me, though. The fuck is this meant to be?
It's only partially a lie
sauce: megaten wikia
She's also pretty cute in Soul Hackers.
"According to scripture Zi-bu-yu in Qing dynasty, Hua Po is a kind of tree spirit said to be formed from the disembodied souls of dead humans when three or more people hang themselves from the same tree."
Bullshit it is. She's a suicide demon.
Battle Hardened Marine vs. High Schooler with swag
Yu wins by default
It's like you haven't watched the anime? Yu is oozing with swag
Ill save it
Best Demon coming through!
Even though I played Persona first, I like better the SMT games, I loved SJ, played Nocturne but couldn't finish because my PS2 busted, same with Raidou.
Now I'm playing Soul Hackers on my 3DS.
>Will you do something naughty with with Nekomata?
You are now realizing the game had "with" as the last word on the first line AND the first word on the second line when answering that question
I don't get why people get so butthurt about Persona. Sure, there are a lot of casuals that play it, but as long as you play other SMT games, it shouldn't matter if you play Persona, too.
Persona brought weeaboos into the series. The "serious" tone up until then had kept it pretty clear.
Hating weeaboos on principle is okay, but some people hate everything they touch, too.
It's probably because, as of Persona 3, the Persona spinoffs have become wildly popular. Far more than any of the other spinoffs or even the mainline games, to the point where the latest Persona installment is coming out on a home console with all the bells and whistles it entails, while the latest release in the mainline series came out on a fucking handheld. Not that I have a problem with the 3DS since I own one, but it's not hard to see there's something fucking wrong with that series of events.
There are two types of Persona fans
1. Fans who play Persona and love it, and play the other SMT games, and either like/dislike them for understandable reasons. It doesn't matter which one is their favorite, it can be SMT IV, Persona 3 FES, as long as they're playing Atlus games it's all good.
2. Fans who play Persona games first, and then
>"WHERE'S THE SOCIAL LINKS IN NOCTURNE?"
>"All you do is dungeon crawl? Uh...no thanks, I'll stick with the superior games..."
>"Where are the shadows? Where's he personas? What the hell is this Chaos/Law bullshit?"
>"Isabeau is best girl in the series. I'd lick her sweaty clothes!"
>"Cathedral of Shadows? OH! This must be Igor!"
Oh, it's just regular Pixie? Not sure how I got that mixed up. Also, I haven't played the first Devil Summoner game, but hopefully that translation patch for the PSP version gets finished eventually.
P3's a decent game with it's share of flaws, but P4's nothing but empty otaku wish fulfillment.
Plus, none of the modern day Persona fans even know what the fuck Persona 1 and 2 are.
>>"Cathedral of Shadows? OH! This must be Igor!"
I actually started with P4, and yet I love P1. Maybe it's just some form of stockholm syndrome, but I spent 300 hours beating the regular story (and that wasn't because I sucked). It's a shame that P2's gameplay is sort of boring because everything from the characters to the music is cash. I really want to keep playing just to find out what happens next, but then I remember that I actually need to play it.
I hope you enjoy ridiculous dungeons, because P1 has some of the best ones in the series, and definitely the best ones out of the Persona games.
By "best" I mean horrifically sadistic to the point where you start enjoying your suffering.
Oh geez, I keep pressing down on the D-Pad to turn around like in SJ.
>that floor full of pitfalls
Personafag here. Never played an SMT game and am seriously thinking of picking up nocturne, IV and maybe Raidou. Are there really people who think like that?!?! I mean, I read a lot about SMT and that got me pretty interested but it's clearly a diferent type of storytelling and general mood. How can someone go into mainline expecting S.Links and all the waifu stuff?
Inb4 casualfag just leave
PSX or PSP version?
Original PSX version had a lot more dead ends in the dungeons that were removed in the port.
Shame that we didn't get SQQ because of the shitty localization.
>How can someone go into mainline expecting S.Links and all the waifu stuff?
I'd recommend getting DDS, it's a good place to start, there isn't negotiation or fusion, but it'll definitely give you a nice taste of what main SMT games are like
DEX (TEC in PSX version), and it also affects gun damage, and a bit of accuracy and avoid, so max that shit first.
Just get enough AGI before so you can go first in battles and get more exp.
Alot of Personafags go into SMT games with the mindset of "Social Links, waifus, etc".
Also, pick up SMT IV first. Atlus made it practically for newcomers to the series, and it's a great game.
>the fusion sound in shin megami 1
Holy shit that noise is so satisfying.
Yeah I won't lie. After you basically set your path near the end, the game starts delving into bad writing territory.
I forgave it since the majority of the game leading up to it was great, but I do wish the endings were better.
I always thought of going Nocturne first because the 3D models are less of a shock to what I'm used (Persona's grafix and animations) and the difficulty spike might make me into one of you mainline cynic haters. Also, i like nintendohard games, so difficulty and MATADOR SWEEP EVERY TIME isn't much of a turn off for me
Give him a better purseowner, or buy better armor, or use buffs, or put him in the back to get him outside of attack range, etc...
Lot's of stuff you can do to protect a weak character in P1.
I'm still barely getting used to the game and haven't even found a shop that sells armor/weaopns, and still getting used to negotiating so I don't have many demons to fuse
Don't have much past the starting persona, so he hasn't been very useful.
Seriously though, I need to set some time aside for getting some spell cards and figuring out demons. I have two ice persona on Maki right now because out of the two new ones, that one said it was "best" for her and I feel like it's such a waste having it on her.
He gets so much VIT later on that you can put him in the front row and just 360noscope bitches throughout the rest of the game, or do what I did and put a persona with Megidola on him.
Yeah, the weird grid system could be very good if tweaked a bit, Nanjo can stay in the back and still attack with his gun due to it's range, while avoiding high hitting attacks from most physical enemies which have low range.
By the way, try to avoid having personas on characters just because of affinity, for example, there's a kinda low level chariot persona that has fucking megidola, Mark has higher affinity but his low DEX reduces the damage, if the persona is put on MC you'll become a rape machine even with just good affinity.
So /v/, I just hit the point in the Chaos path of SMTIV where
everyone is hopping to different dimensions. The fuck is going on? Seriously, I am enjoying the oddity of it all, but any sense the story had went out the window 5 hours ago. I am sure they explain it all at the end...right?
More like because of productions costs, PS2 was cheap to produce to, so it got tons of games, and now that PS3 era is ending, it's cheaper to produce to, same reason why Atlus is producing so many handheld games.
Also, Raidou 2 was released after Persona 4 on the PS2, so technically the last spin off that got a main entry on consoles was devil summoner.
Not them but it is pretty sad how we skipped an entire generation of consoles with no SMT games, only Persona 5.
I know Atlus was busy with handhelds this gen, but I really hope they go back to console games for this gen. SMT x FE is a good start I guess.
>started with Purse owner 3, 4, 2 then DDS.
>Nocturne is my current favourite Atlus game
I start with column b and end up in column a.
Yup, that's probably the one, trade around your personas, let mark have a high agility persona with a healing or supportive spell, he's pretty useless early on, but phys attacks get really good late game, especially since tarukaja is the most accessible buff in the game.
He's doing pretty well with it so far.
Like I can tell I'm kind of fucked with what I have right now, so I need to build up more guys.
1. MC Semen - Kongu, Quetzalcoatl
2. Maki - Maso, Fuutai (fucking love his sprite)
3. Nanjo - Aizen Myouou
4. Mark - Ogun, Gozu-Tennoh (love his sprite too)
5. Brown - Nemhain, Pyro Jack
I don't actually no anyone from column B. I'm sure they exist - like that one terrible review of SMTIV - but all of my actual friends (and myself) started the franchise with either Persona 3 or 4 and wound up liking all the SMT games.
And Pixie is the best demon solely because completely slapping endgame shit and killing Lucifer in Nocturne with a fucking Pixie, normally one of the weakest demons in the game, is the best Goddamn thing ever.
I really liked the whole playing as a demon in Nocturne. I thought it was a cool change of pace and it was nice to see things from a demon's angle for once, even if it wasn't really that much different per-say.
Also nice thread OP. Love SMT threads as much as
Oh and best demon is Pixie. Facts only anon.
Sprites in P1 were so good.
Well, you're not really fucked, combat is actually pretty easy, just be sure to fuse Phaleg and abuse mediarama.
You really should give gozu-tennoh to MC so he can one shot encounters at the first action easily, you could also give it to Maki since her DEX is good.
Honestly, MC could probably solo the whole game alone if it wasn't for status effects possibly trapping you into an endless circle since they stack.
I think you're only allowed to fuse the special Nemechi demons AFTER you've bought them from Nemechi. I like it, since it means if you fuse it or lose it in some other way, you don't necessarily have to dump more D-Souls into getting it back.
That's not Demonee-Ho.
They're probably tied though, since Raidou Frost looks pretty cool too
God dammit, this gets me all the time. Thank
YHVHthat Etrian Odyssey at least lets you draw and fill in the map yourself, so you don't HAVE to walk on absolutely every square tile to fill it.
Doesn't stop me from doing it most of the time though, what with the unmarked interactions on the map like fruits and stuff. I only just found the eggs in the Moth Nest in EO IV a couple of days ago, because I hadn't bothered to check one particular direction of a single tile and just assumed the nest would be behind the ominously locked door that doesn't seem to open in any way.
God damn why do I love this series so much
